Spinoff[ edit ] In FebruaryDean Koontz announced that his upcoming novel Secret Forest would be a spinoff of this novel. Judging by all evidence, he was bold but not reckless, psychopathic but self-controlled, clever, ingenious, cunning, with a baroque and Machiavellian mind.
It soon turns out, however, that Zillis has a watertight alibi for the time when some of the crimes were committed, and Wiles ends up none the wiser. The following day, however, a cruel murder is reported which exactly fits the description given in advance by the alleged joker.
In the eyes of the police, he would be the perpetrator rather than one of the victims. This book was chosen to hold the number one spot on my list because it is a novel of love and all the interconnectedness of the world.
He decides not to go to the police and to consult someone he knows who happens to be in the police force instead. His first bestseller was Demon Seedthe sales of which picked up after the release of the film of the same name inand sold over two million copies in one year.
He has a fast spreading cancer in his eyes so the doctors just remove them to save his life. An orphan, he only associates with a few people, and he considers them acquaintances rather than friends.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a story that takes you on a fantastic voyage.
